Easter Bunny to Drive Instead of Hop Down Vienna Streets Tomorrow

People in Vienna hoping to spot the Easter Bunny this year will have their chance tomorrow (April 9), according to the town’s newsletter.

Town officials organized a “drive-by bunny tour” tomorrow starting at 10 a.m. along the north side of Maple Avenue. People who celebrate Easter or simply want to take a break out of their day can watch the bunny drive down the street while waving, playing music and horn honking.

“Mr. Bunny will visit residents on the south side beginning around 12:30 p.m.,” the newsletter said. “He promises to make his presence known so that residents will be aware when he’s coming through their area.”

To respect social-distancing guidelines, people will not be able to interact with the bunny outside of the drive-by, according to the newsletter.

The idea was inspired by New Zealand’s prime minister who classified the Easter Bunny as an “essential worker,” the newsletter noted, adding that the bunny’s helpers will try to hit as many streets as possible.
